This charming Fisherboy Sundial Birdbath is both decorative and functional, the way we like it. The young boy's fishing pole tracks the time on the Roman numeral sundial, while your backyard birds can drink and cool off in the bowl.
Mount it on this classic Roman Pedestal for a charming backyard accent.
Both are handcrafted from rust-proof, recycled aluminum with a powder coat finish. Available in Bronze and Verdigris.
One of our dogs' more enjoyable pastimes is snacking on the seed the wild birds have spilled onto the ground from their feeders. For many backyard birders, this scattering is a waste of seed, plus which it does damage the grass and attracts rodents.
To solve that problem, attach this lightweight mesh Seed Hoop to almost any bird feeder and catch virtually all that seed your birds spill.
The Hoop is available in two sizes--a 30" diameter and a smaller 16" diameter and folds to 1/3 its full size for easy storage and shipping.
Many people who love dogs love books as well. If that describes you, combine your passions with this Book Fetch Toy. Not only will your dog curl up at your feet while you read, but he or she can also learn how to fetch one with this realistic dog toy.
The Book Fetch Toy is made from safe, durable, nontoxic rubber. Choose To Kill a Mocking Squirrel or Fetch-22. Great Father's Day gift!
This super cute clip of a dog and a young deer romping in the yard is a must-see for animal lovers. First, some background from L.A. Unleashed:
The deer, named Theen, was cared for by mlcarriker's family after he was discovered alone and malnourished. The family bottle-fed Theen until he began to eat on his own, and although he's now free to wander and mingle with his wild brethren, he "frequently comes back to the house to eat some [cat food] and play with our dog, Buddy," mlcarriker explains. "He doesn't care much for deer corn."
At the end of the video, notice the cats perched on the porch bannister watching the show.
Birders, this Brinno GardenWatchCam with Flash Drive is a relatively low cost, time-lapse camera to capture natural events that you may miss with the naked eye. Easy-to-use and weather-resistant, just mount it in the ground. The cam uses a high quality lens to target your chosen area and snaps shots of anything that experiences change over time--bird activity, flowers blooming, bees pollinating, and spiders making webs.
With this camera you can take photos at specific predetermined time settings you set up, with the option of 7 different time settings. It stores up to 2 gigabytes of data in a USB flash drive. Each digital JPEG image is dated and time-stamped for you to view and share on your computer. The included software allows easy playback and viewing as an AVI file.
It's rewarding to enjoy wild birds at the back yard feeders, but frustrating to watch pesky squirrels steal the seed and the show.
This Squirrel Buster Classic cleverly uses the squirrel's weight to foil the theft attempts. The feeder has openings in its wire grid that align with the seed ports and allow the birds to access the seed. When a squirrel or large bird climbs onto the feeder, its weight forces the grid down and shuts down access to the seed ports.
The feeder has plenty of surfaces for small clinging birds such as nuthatches to grip, with removable perches for chickadees, finches and sparrows.
Now that the weather is nicer, we are headed outside to clear away the cobwebs and play fetch with our dogs. Here's a few fetch toys we have dug up for fun in the sun:
The Kurgo Winga launches a disc 200 feet away for your pet to chase. The 3 inch rubber discs soar through the air and float on water for our doggies who love to swim. Great for parks, playgrounds, backyards and beaches.
The Chewbers Frisbee is streamlined to throw longer distances to accommodate our bigger dogs. The Chewbers help clean dog teeth and massage gums (made from durable double-layer rubber bonded to a nylon core). It also conveniently doubles as a on-the-spot water dish if you are on the go.
Love hummingbirds? We sure do here at Super Cool Pets. They buzz outside our office window, feeding on the nectar of the Firespike plants and the Confederate Jasmine.
Even if you don't have any of these lovely creatures zipping by your window, you can still enjoy their beauty with this Solar Hummingbird Mobile.
The four floating hummingbirds each contain a bright LED light, which automatically comes on at dusk. Just place the Solar Hummingbird Mobile in direct sunlight during the day to view these translucent, illuminated tiny hummingbirds after dark.
